In light of the barrage of projectiles that were aimed at the Bruins by Tampa Bay fans after Wednesday night’s Game 6 loss at the St. Pete Times Forum, Milan Lucic has an idea for the TD Garden’s next giveaway.
“We were making jokes in here that we should probably have a hammer night sponsored by DeWalt and see what will happen,” said Lucic, after he was one of two Bruins to not take the morning skate in preparation for tonight’s Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final at the Garden.
While several Bruins players were hit by the thrown objects, Lucic said he dodged a couple before they hit him in the face. Linemate Nathan Horton famously responded to one fan’s verbal attack with a squirt and throw of a water bottle. The league took no public disciplinary action against Horton.
If the Bruins win Game 7, the Garden operations staff would undoubtedly do any promotion Lucic wants.
